Long Business Description

Behavior Therapy & Learning Center (Behavior TLC) is owned and operated by two Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) dedicated to providing applied behavior analysis (ABA) services for individuals with Autism and other developmental and/or intellectual disabilities and their families. Behavior TLC services include a clinic-based day program, school consultation, parent and teacher training, social skills, and occasional in-home programs.

Day Program
•The BTLC Day Program focuses on acquiring new skills, maintaining existing skills and decreasing unwanted behaviors.
•This service is a clinic-based, one-on-one service.
•A portion of clinic time will also focus on caregiver training and sibling training if appropriate.
•The Day Program offers full time, half time, and hourly tuition packages.
•The hours are from 8:30-2:30, Monday through Friday
•This service focuses on assessment-based, individualized curriculum
•The clinic has a camera system for viewing sessions
•The Day Program schedule imitates a typical classroom including calendar time, art, and group games daily

In Home ABA
BTLC’s in home ABA programs are geared specifically to the families’ individual needs. In Home services are limited to those clients who are medically unable to travel to the clinic or for those clients whose behavior plans are specific to the home environment. Due to the high demand for in home services we have very limited availability and the ability to provide those services are at the discretion of the supervising BCBA. Club TLC-Afterschool Program
•BTLC offers an afterschool program Mondays through Thursdays from 3:30-5:30.
•This program focuses on homework help and social skills for our elementary-intermediate aged students.
•This program is individualized as each student receives one-on-one assistance
•Lesson plans geared towards clients’ specific goals as indicated by assessment and parent report.

Consultation
For those clients whose needs do not fit into one of the above models, we do offer a consultation service. This service can be used on an hourly basis with one of our BCBA’s or BCaBA’s as a provider. Often the consultation service is a parent training program where the therapist meets with the parent to discuss issues and guides the parent to implement a behavior plan in the home. This service can also be used for one of our therapists to attend ARD meetings or provide training to other caregivers or family members.

We bring your child together with typically-developing peers as role models of use of language and play skills; verbal behavior training  teaches key pivotal response of “self-regulation” resulting in diminished aggression/tantrums, stimming, repetitive behaviors that impede acceptance/mainstreaming in  the schools.
